Sauber named "Team of the Year" by Swiss
Peter Sauber's team has been named "Team of the Year" in Switzerland's annual sporting awards.
PETER SAUBER's team has been named "Team of the Year" in Switzerland's annual sporting awards. The honor comes in recognition of the Hinwil team's fourth place in the Formula 1 Constructors' Championship in 2001. The result is the team's best ever finish in the World Championship and is realistically all that it can achieve without the backing of a major car manufacturer to lift the team into competition with Formula 1's big three teams: McLaren, Williams and Ferrari.
The team has achieved the results with a staff which is considerably smaller than several others F1 operations and with a much more conservative budget.
